This has got to be one of the most miserable films that I have ever had the fortune to see. Although miserable, there is an abundance of humour contained within. I watched the film a couple of years back after it had been standing on my shelf for a year or so before that, it had me depressed and laughing and then depressed again throughout its hour and a half running time.
Anyone who enjoys low budget, gritty realism type films should make the effort to see this. It's about an Oslo postman who is a little bit too nosey for his own good. His prying about other people lives leads him to trouble of the kind not generally associated with the postal service. I'm not going to tell you everything about the movie because, to be honest, there isn't much to tell. Just go and see it for yourself. In the UK it is available on Tartan Video under the heading 'Junkmail'. If you are lucky enough (and patient enough to watch a Norwegian language film) then you will have stumbled upon one of the greatest dark comedies you're ever likely to see. Norway's greatest gift to an audience which is becoming more and more receptive of non-English language film.
